Greenwich Real Estate – Open Houses + Recent Sales September 15 through September 21

Some homes for sale in Greenwich sit on the market for an extended period of time - and go through several price reductions - before they find a new owner. Other homes hit the market and get snatched up quickly. Sometimes it's just a matter of offering the right price for the time and location.

What else can help move a home? Excellent views. proximity to schools/highways/businesses. Upgraded amenities.

Marketing prowess can definitely play a role. Staging. Pro-level photography. Drone video. These days, we're even seeing virtual reality home tours creating a buzz - 3D, 360°, photo-realistic home renderings - the stuff of the future.

Other times, an element of luck helps the home move quickly. A motivated buyer happens to glance in the direction of a yard sign on the very day it's placed out - and the magic happens.

This week's Featured Recently Sold Property, is an example of a home that sold quickly: a classic Pre-War Colonial on Lake Drive South in Riverside.

What, do you think, are the elements that helped this home sale close in expedient fashion?

For one, the home has a covered front porch, a gracious center hall foyer and plenty of flexible living spaces. A need for extra bedrooms. Check. Prefer an extra office. Check.

There are also formal living and dining rooms, a quiet office, an updated kitchen which opens to a sunny family room, as well as a lower level playroom, laundry room and cedar closet - which all add to the square footage.

The lakeside Riverside location is attractive for multiple reasons - not the least of which is the convenience to train, schools, and the Yacht Club.
